Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (25 Chw 2015)

Peter Tapsell: May I assure my right hon. Friend—[Interruption.]

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (25 Chw 2015)

Peter Tapsell: May I assure my right hon. Friend that I am not a paid trade union official but I fear that if Members of the House are not allowed a second job, membership of it will soon be largely confined to the inheritors of substantial fortunes or to those with rich spouses, or to obsessive crackpots or those who are unemployable anywhere else?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (11 Chw 2015)

Peter Tapsell: May I put it to the Prime Minister that from President Monroe onwards it has been generally acknowledged by leaders of great powers that, for the avoidance of war, it is often wise to acknowledge the concept of traditional spheres of authority and power; and that although Ukraine is of absolutely no significant strategic importance to Britain, Greece most certainly is; and that unless western...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (21 Ion 2015)

Peter Tapsell: Does my right hon. Friend fully recognise the contrast in efficiency of the inquiries into the Crimean war and the Dardanelles campaign compared with the disgraceful incompetence of the Chilcot inquiry into widely held suspicions that Mr Blair conspired with President George W. Bush several months before March 2003, and then systematically sought to falsify the evidence on which action was taken?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements ( 7 Ion 2015)

Peter Tapsell: Reverting to the subject of the Chilcot report, about which I have questioned the Prime Minister in the past, did my right hon. Friend note that our distinguished colleague Lord Hurd said in the House of Lords yesterday said that it was an absolute disgrace that it had not been published—a view that I certainly hold? Since it is absolutely well known by the cognoscenti that the report was...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: G20 (17 Tach 2014)

Peter Tapsell: Would my right hon. Friend’s reportedly robust private conversations with President Putin be even more persuasive if it was seen that Britain is rearming?

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Chagossian Resettlement (28 Hyd 2014)

Peter Tapsell: A previous Father of the House and great friend of mine, Sir Bernard Braine, was a passionate advocate of the rights of the inhabitants of Diego Garcia when the whole idea of turning it into a base was launched. In his memory, may I say that I very much hope that the guarantees that he received from the British Government of the time about looking after those people will be fulfilled?

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: EU Council, Security and Middle East ( 1 Med 2014)

Peter Tapsell: Does the Prime Minister recognise that one of the reasons why there are misguided British jihadists fighting in Arabia is the folly of those in the Gulf and in the west who first encouraged and then supported a Sunni rebellion against the Syrian Alawites? We must avoid, under the banner of democracy, intervening in a religious civil war that has already lasted for 1,300 years.

Bill Presented — Counsellors and Psychotherapists (Regulation) Bill: Retirement of the Clerk of the House (16 Gor 2014)

Peter Tapsell: There can be few public offices with an unbroken history of over half a millennium, but the office of Clerk of the House of Commons is one of them. If Sir Robert Rogers had taken the Clerk’s traditional place at the Table at any time over the past 626 years, he would always have looked perfect for the role. I am also confident that had Sir Robert been there when King Charles I burst into...

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: European Council (30 Meh 2014)

Peter Tapsell: May I express to our Prime Minister my admiration for his determined opposition to the election to the presidency of the European Union of a man who is wedded to the idea of closer political and economic union, and to the freedom of movement of peoples, which would siphon huge numbers of further immigrants into this country? May I also deplore the provocative decision of the European Union to...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (18 Meh 2014)

Peter Tapsell: Is the Prime Minister aware of the growing sentiment that, as the publication of the Chilcot report has been so long delayed, the ancient but still existing power of Back Benchers to commence the procedure of impeachment should now be activated to bring Mr Tony Blair to account for allegedly misleading the House on the necessity of the invasion of Iraq in 2003?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (30 Ebr 2014)

Peter Tapsell: Reverting to the subject of Royal Mail, as the leader of the stockbroking team that brought British Gas to the market and as the author of the phrase “Ask Sid”, may I tell the Prime Minister that the Opposition’s questions about, and their criticisms of, the way in which the Royal Mail launch was handled show their total ignorance of City markets? The fact is that when one tries to make...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (30 Ebr 2014)

Peter Tapsell: If an issue fails, those institutions responsible for its launch are ruined.

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Ukraine (28 Ebr 2014)

Peter Tapsell: I put it to my right hon. Friend that the rescue of the failed state of Ukraine from civil war needs to be kept entirely separate from any attempt to overthrow the historic treaty of Küçük Kaynarca of 1774—[Interruption.] Well, we base our defence of Gibraltar and the Falklands on ancient treaties, so they should not be disregarded. The treaty of Küçük Kaynarca transferred the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Ukraine ( 8 Ebr 2014)

Peter Tapsell: Although all historical analogies tend to be misleading, can it be borne in mind that if we are looking back to the 1930s, as we are fully entitled to do, the occupation of the Crimea and Sevastopol bears more resemblance to the Anschluss than to the invasion of Sudetenland? If the Russians were actually to invade Ukraine, that of course would be an act of naked aggression.

Oral Answers to Questions — House of Commons Commission: Tributes to Tony Benn (20 Maw 2014)

Peter Tapsell: I am the only Member still in the House who voted in favour of the 1963 Peerage Bill, which enabled Tony Benn to renounce his distinguished father’s Stansgate viscountcy and return to us here. At the time, it was a controversial vote. Earlier, he had been elected as a Member of Parliament at the age of 25, when I, just back from the Army, was in my first year at Oxford. Very shortly after...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: European Council (10 Maw 2014)

Peter Tapsell: Why is it acceptable for the Scottish nationalists to be granted a referendum in Scotland on constitutional arrangements dating back to 1707, but unacceptable for Russian nationalists in the Crimea to have a referendum about constitutional arrangements that date back only to 1954? Does my right hon. Friend agree that, if the Crimean referendum could be postponed until such time as...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Ukraine ( 4 Maw 2014)

Peter Tapsell: May I put it to the Foreign Secretary that Brussels is partly to blame for this Ukrainian crisis? If the already over-enlarged European Union is going to continue to try to extend its borders towards Mongolia, we will indeed finish up with a third world war. Every Russian knows that the capture of Crimea and Sevastopol was the greatest achievement of Catherine the Great—that is why she is...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Sri Harmandir Sahib ( 4 Chw 2014)

Peter Tapsell: May I add to the answer to the spontaneous question asked by my hon. Friend the Member for Gainsborough (Sir Edward Leigh)? It is difficult for the present generation to realise how close our relationships with India still were at that time. My father and grandfather were both born in India, and I knew Indira Gandhi very well. I visited her a fortnight before she was assassinated at her...

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Russian Naval Ships ( 3 Chw 2014)

Peter Tapsell: If it is safe to assume that these Russian warships were not planning to bombard Mr Salmond, may we assume that they were there to establish the unimpeded rights of Russia to exploit oil in the Arctic? If so, will we have reciprocal rights to look for oil in the Russian Arctic?
